Rice Seminar Research Fellowships, 2014-15
“Exchanges and Temporalities in the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Victorianism”
The Humanities Research Center at Rice University is accepting applications for yearlong residential fellowships to participate in the 2014-15 Rice Seminar, “Exchanges and Temporalities in the Enlightenment, Romanticism, and Victorianism.” We are looking to appoint three external faculty members (any rank) and one postdoctoral fellow. Fellows will participate in the Rice Seminar, a yearlong research seminar designed to study a broad topic from an interdisciplinary perspective. The seminar will be directed by Helena Michie (English) and Alexander Regier (English).
Applications are welcome from scholars, from all ranks and in all disciplines, whose research problematizes the geographical, chronological, and epistemological assumptions that divide the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries into periods or movements, and addresses cultural exchanges between Britain and the rest of the world. Fellows will take part in a yearlong residential research seminar, leading to the publication of an edited collection with a major university press. See link for a full description of the seminar.
